About This Listing

For sale is my John Osthoff Jumbo Series Baritone in presentation grade Brazilian rosewood (this stuff is bonkers) and mastergrade Italian spruce. This guitar was built for me in 2017 and is in mint condition except for a tiny indention in the top (~1 x 2mm, see last photo…this is barely noticeable and light has to hit it perfectly for it even to be visible). As you would expect, it has thunderous bass but the trebles don't suffer in the least. The guitar sounds incredibly balanced overall and truly has fantastic note separation and complexity. It is strung with .016-.059 strings so it’s essentially a light gauge baritone setup but it still gives the full sonic boom characteristic of this type of guitar. I generally tune down one full step on this setup regardless of the tuning but you could put heavier strings on it and tune down further.  Comes in the original Ameritage case embroidered with the Osthoff logo.

Just because I know I will get this question: I’m hoping to pick up a Jason Kostal that has caught my eye and that’s why I’m selling. As such, I’m not interested in trades.
